BECOME BETTER- latest book

“Become Better”

Apply Emotional Intelligence for Success. We all want success and it comes with Emotional Intelligence as this boosts our self-control, good communicators, relate well with others, be liked and respected.

Become Better

Indeed, Dr Ann Polya’s latest book– “Become Better” –shows us simply how we can do this by using our Emotional Intelligence to control feelings and actions.

The key is to use our Emotional Intelligence strategically, which enables us to recognize and control our feelings and thoughts so that our actions are effective and improve our communication and ways we connect with others. 

Ann began the book when the Covid pandemic turned our lives askew; with countless restrictions and risks. As a result, she realized that we must use our Emotional Intelligence frequently to avoid losing our key skill to keep focused on what we want, and lead our lives strategically by putting our Emotional Intelligence into action to control our emotions and thoughts so that we can direct our lives successfully, and attain our goals.

She illustrates how our Emotional Intelligence is like a muscle, and so, by using it more frequently and broadly, we boost our own Emotional wisdom to do the right thing.

Overcome obstacles
Using Emotional Intelligence

This means we make better decisions, listen better, communicate clearly and improve our interpersonal skills. By using these aspect of emotional intelligence, we can more easily cope with uncertainty as we are clearer about who we are and what we want. Indeed, as the present seems to be getting more complex and has more roadblocks, Dr. Polya believes it is now “…more important than ever to apply Emotional Intelligence to cope well with changing circumstances”.

Strategic Emotional Intelligence

Strategic use of Emotional Intelligence is critical to make balanced decisions. It gives us a path to follow; this allows us use both our emotions and thought processes to communicate effectively and handle our challenges well. Furthermore, by using our Emotional Intelligence skills strategically, we have competitive edge over others –as well as robots; since we become more adept at reconciling feelings with rational processing.

Success from within

“Become Better” not only gives us the tools to be more aware of our feelings, but also be able to  control them. This,  then allows us to focus on what we want to achieve. Using our Emotional Intelligence, we relate better as our communication is understood, and we can direct others more successfully. “Become Better” draws on Dr. Polya’s  research and experience, and provides a road map for all of us who want to develop our skills, and be in charge of our lives.

Greater Balance in our Lives

Applying Emotional Intelligence allows us to balance our emotional and our rational side. Above all, this allows us to move towards our key goals.
